    Hey guys,
    I was wondering if anyone out there in cyberland had created a database to keep track of which magazines they had and the articles within them. I just recieved a collection of train magazines and want a way to keep up with them as well as which Im missing. Thanks for all your help.

    I keep a simple spreadsheet for each magazine, months across the top, years in the first column, then just place an "X" on each magazine I have. I have one spreadsheet for each magazine. It's easy to update, most of the work is already done. Then, so I can access it from anywhere or share it with friends, I export to html and post the result on a web site (click "my magazines"):

    When I want to research something, I use the index nachoman pointed out and search by keyword, then compare the results to my index and pull out the mags I need.

    One of the things I have on my "to do" list is to scan all of my magazines to cdr or cdrw and throw out the paper versions.

    Not sure if I would throw out the paper versions...never know when they might come in handy. I have no clue what years/months I have at this moment....guess I will start creating my own database....should prove to be interesting...maybe access would be best...if I created a basic database then I could share it on here and you all could input which months/years you have...articles could be cataloged as well...77railer

    Unless someone knows of an easier way...?
